Echinacea Sombrero Tres Amigos (Coneflower)

(Sombrero® Series) Flower petals open peachy-coral, then turn rose-red, and fade to burgundy as the season progresses. They surround a bright red-brown rounded cone and grow en masse above bright green foliage. Rapid growth rate.

Use as cut or dried flowers. Be sure to keep some flowers in the garden over winter, as the blackened seedheads provide cold-season garden interest, as well as food for finches and other winter birds.
